at this. >> this bill does nottiol costs. this bill does not reduce deficits. instead, this bill adds a new health care entitlement at a time when we had no idea to pay for the entitlements we already have. >> people who are paying premiums now are going to see rate shocks come into play, we have small business, ploy i don't see, looking to see how they are getting covered. it will be a real challenge, this administration. i think we got a lot of rom for improvement on that. >> at a time when the economy is barely eeking along, wages aren't increasing, new jobs aren't available. what are we doing? we are putting more costs and inconvenience on the american people. >> right now the ceo says up to 20 million people will lose their insurance as obama care goes into effect next year. likewise, a study of american businesses said 30% of them are anticipating dropping people from coverage. >> any insurance that you currently have would be grandfathered in so you could keep. >> jerry, just remember, it's not a lie if you believe it. at a ford dealer with a little q and a for fiona. tell me f
time in five years, mark it up, folks. u.s. government has a budget deficit below $1 trillion. that's good news. republicans refuse to admit president obama was able to cut the deficit in half and he's not the big spender, so-called conservatives have accused him of being. >> president obama called out for being a big spender. >> the budget of bush, they were both big spenders but obama was way more of a bigger spender. >> who was the bigger spender under president george bush? >> hang on. he's a big spender. and that to me is the heart and soul the argument against obama. >> new numbers show there was a comedy nation of more revenue and less spending leading to a gap of $680 billion. that's billion with a "b." it's the lowest level since the recession. now a bipartisan group of house and senate negotiators are working on writing the first overall budget blueprint since 2009. it all comes down to how they decide to generate revenue. and we know the republicans have said no new taxes and the democrats have said no, you're not getting the big three. let's sort it out. i'm joined by ri
tonight on "the kudlow report" at 7:00. on the budget report and deficit, he said sequestration, budget cuts are the base line, there will be no tax increases. if there's a deal to be made to loosen up the sequester, there have to be other budget cuts substituted for that, perhaps some entitlements but nothing else. taxes are off the board no matter what you may hear. i think we have -- >> i would like to think we can come up with better, smarter ways of cutting spending that also are good for the economy. it would show the credit and bond markets and the world that america is getting ahead of its problems. we want to have an agreement to foster these things, common ground on spending cuts, entitlement reforms and focus on pro-growth policy. >> i mean, he loves to have some pro-growth tax reform in there, simon, but in my discussion with him on stage and off stage, he felt the odds of that are very, very low. the debates will be what kind of spends cuts, whether the sequester line will be used or whether they'll loosen up the sequester and have additional cuts, maybe tiny entitlements b
the deficit by hundreds of billions of dollars. then there's this little sugar blum, that it will wreck the economy. that's a hard one to make when the stock market hit an all-time high. thank you congressman. i'm beginning to fall in love with everybody in new jersey. tell me about the tenor of the discussion today. >> it was all scare tactics and the gop trying to sabotage the affordable care act. the first thing was this idea that you mentioned at first about the insurance companies taking away your plan. this is private insurance in a competitive market. so the insurers that are canceling these individual policies are doing so because they are not going to be able to sell them. if you have a skeletal plan that has very vifew benefits and cosa lot and somebody else is on the exchange that has better benefits and costs less, you're not going to be able to sell your insurance. so they're notifying people that they're not selling the lousy insurance at a high price. people say i want to keep my plan. why in the world would you want to keep a lousy plan that's going to cost you more. ant
this by broadening the tax base and lowering tax rates in a way that doesn't add a dime to the federal deficit. the president put forward the details of his tax reform and pleadmead clear his commitment -- and has made clear his commitment to business tax reform paired with an infrastructure package paid for with one-time revenue. we have a real opportunity ahead to seize the tax reform and establish a simpler, fairer and more competitive tax reform in the yeats. -- years. they share much in common with the approach the president has put forward. there's no reason we can't start with the substantial policy areas we agree on and come together to find common ground. in addition to reforming our tax system, we must finish the work of creating new trade agreements that are free and fair. they must open up markets for america's businesses and must add to the millions of american jobs that are currently supported by trade. as congress comes together in support of trade deals we'll help expand the biggest, -- the biggest mark place in the global economy and rere-inforce the position to invest and exp
of the tapering, $85 billion a month was one thing when the federal budget deficit was a lot bigger than it is. it shrunk a bunch. continues to shrink. is there a limit to that in your view? is that one of the reasons they may begin sooner rather than later? >> it's an interesting point. obviously there's a limit of 100%. but i don't think that will push them to taper sooner than the economic conditions warrant. even if they're taking a bigger and bigger share of the total. i think the deficit came down quite dramatically. but now we're getting essentially to the spot where the conditions are approaching something more normal. so it's not going to -- the deficit's not going to keep shrinking at that kind of rates it did over the last year. so i don't think that's going to be playing as much in their mind. but i do think it's an important point. >> so we've got to go, austin, but since you left, we've had the shutdown, benghazi, the irs scandal, the obama care rollout. does this -- am i making clear -- >> two hours after i left, they downgraded the u.s. government. you're on to something. >> ca
of big deficit and entitlement problems and corporate tax rates. folks say alan greenspan is whitewashing this. you kept interest rates too low for too long in the mid 2000s. i know this is not new criticism. in the book you steadfastly maintain it is not the case. >> the reason is it is simply not the case. >> john taylor and others have done econometric work. he says you were a great fed chairman from 2002 to 2005 you kept rates too low for too long and that created the bubble. >> john is terrific. he used to work for me. we are very good friends but we really disagree. let me tell what you the take is on why i think that argument that he's making is wrong. if you look at the -- it's not the issue of, first of all, subprime, that's a minor -- almost a minor issue. the real problem is that when the berlin wall came down, the economic room behind the iron curtain was so debilitating and so unexpected that the third world, which is what we now call the developing world, which had been largely collectivized with socialism and regulation, switched very dramatically towards market capitalism.
to sequestration. we have reduced federal spending. we have reduced the deficit in half. so this idea that if we get more money to the treasury from the wealthiest americans and all the democrats are going to do is go out and spend it, there is no record of that under the obama years. stick around. rapid response panel coming up. >>> i'm jackie deangelis with your cnbc market wrap. a mixed day for stocks. the dow losing 1 one point. the s&p gaining two. industrial projection only edging up by .6% in august. and higher mortgage rates taking aa toll on the housing market. home sales plunging 5.6% in september. and tweeting a coffee to a friend is now possible. starbucks launching the program today, allowing instant gift cards to be sent via twitter. that's it from cnbc, first in business worldwide. as your life changes, fidelity is there for your personal economy, helping you readjust along the way, refocus as careers change and kids head off to college, and revisit your investments as retirement gets closer. wherever you are today, fidelity's guidance can help you fine-tune your personal economy.
of the congressional budget office is that would it increase the deficit by about $110 billion in the first decade and close to a trillion dollars in the second decade. >> they're rooting for failure. >> in today's top trender. washington wizards. >> in the wizard of oz, there is a great line. >> i have a feeling we're not in kansas anymore. >> sebelius deals with a blizzard of oz comments at today's hearing. >> madam secretary, while you're from kansas, we're not in kansas anymore. >> i'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog too. >> people went to see the wizard because of the wonderful things he did. >> the great oz has spoken! >> some might way we are actually in the wizard of oz nd the parallel universes we appear to be habitating. >> be gone, before somebody drops a house on you! >> i'm joined tonight again by joan walsh, what an arrogance coming from congressman joe barton from texas. >> yes. what. >> is the health care situation in kansas? he probably doesn't even know. in fact, i'm not convinced these people on this house committee on the republican side have even read the b
bipartisan transportation legislation. they went into this fall with a deficit, and then occurred the shutdown. and the shutdown has really turned off virginia voters. they see that as a dysfunctional congress, they see it as an example of that extremism. they don't like it. many of us were affected by it, because virginia is very much tied to the federal government in terms of investment defense spending and technology investment. and i think the republicans are going to pay a very heavy price for that next tuesday. >> you know, we have -- you talk about sort of the gender gap there. you have the latest poll, "washington post"/abc news has mcauliffe winning by 24 points among women. i think back to four years ago, mcauliffe, his national reputation, he was a bungler. sort of a d.c. big pun guy. he ran four years ago in virginia, got trounced in the democratic primary. you know, i hear there's a writer for "new york" magazine who said at the start of this campaign this year that terry mcauliffe is the democrat that democrats have been dreaming of voting against. i just look at thi
them to the deficit and easing the sequester. there's a deal to be made if both sides will approach it with willingness to engage in give and take. >> i'm curious how optimisticing that lawmakers will do the same because you're saying give and take, both sides have to give a little. >> well, remember, first of all, let's start with the things we agree on. we agree with a lot of the president's entitlement reforms. we don't think we should have to pay for areas we agree by doing things like raising taxes. we don't expect the democrats to embrace the ryan plan on medicare or the block grant medicaid to the states. so they've got some lines in the sand on their side. i respect that. but there's enough room in the middle to actually get something done, and frankly, if not, you know, the sequester levels of spending are already written into the law. and we can certainly enact those. but again, we think there's better ways to save money and still have money to do some of the things the president's talking about doing. infrastructure development and certainly easing some of the domestic sp
a ballooning -- i mean, the political conversation, that's legitimate, is about the deficit, right? and about what it means to be having a program that has ballooned as large as s.n.a.p. but s.n.a.p.'s ballooned because people are out of work and have been out of work at record numbers for over a year. so -- but one of the things that the congressional budget office has said is that number one, this is not our fiscal problem, because by 2019, without congress doing anything, by 2019, it's going to shrink and it's going to be at 1995 numbers in terms of gross domestic product. so it's not our economic problem, and for every dollar we spend on a food stamp to feed someone who is hungry, we get $1.70 in economic activity. >> yep. >> that's bang for the buck, as well as just right. >> i just don't want to miss that, right? that when -- that what we do is we create elasticity. and right, republicans are supposed to get this, right? you guys are supposed to be the ones who get the numbers of this. that we create elasticity in the budgets of people living at the margins, right? so once you provide a
with the congress, it's very difficult. tom foley therefore was pivotal for my andslide victory economic and deficit reduction won by one vote. that was made possible by the speaker and everybody else that voted for it. but also we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the family medical leave law, 20th anniversary of america core. they are part of the pillars of our sense of common citizenship. i've had republicans and democrats come up to me and tell me what a difference the family leave law made for them. young people who belong to both political party who is believed in citizen service and participated in america corp. he helped make those things ossible too. and one of the things that i always appreciated about him and marveled was how he could be brutally honest in the kindest way. it is true as leader pelosi said that he had had a conversion of sorts on the whole question of assault weapons and because of an experience he had. but he was very clear headed. e told me when we succeeded in no small measure thanks for the leadership of senator biden and putting the assault weapons ban back into the
at the expense of paycheck america while enabling the greatest deficits in american history. conservative need to advance freedom by repelling obamacare and replacing it with a system that is consumer directed and significantly less costly. conservatives need to advance economic freedom by tearing down the barriers created by mindnumbing rules and atulations and licenses every level of government that stifles job creation and innovation and does not reward the spirit and determination necessary to be successful in life. if jack cap was here with us today, i am confident he would be advancing the american renewal by embracing freedom in every way. i want to end with a couple of notes about my mentor and hero. jack was a compassionate man. it is interesting we find ourselves at a party in a movement and as a nation confronting many of the same policy changes that jack cap -- predicted from immigration to education reform. i was honored when jack served as honorary chairman of the foundation for florida's future. i asked him and i thought he was say no. it was the greatest call i ever had in my l
. >> the team was the worst team in 47 years last year. it wasn't just a talent deficit. guys were left over from the collapse of 2011 that didn't want to be here. josh beckett. adrian gonzalez, paul crawford. they were guys here and gonzalez and crawford were talented. they went to l.a. and it was good again. who was more fun to watch hit than him. they were complaining about night games and road trips and not a good fit for him to be in the market. you get seven guys like david ross and napoli and dempster and nose guys. they thrived this this thing. it was a total clubhouse culture transformation. >> i think one of the great moments of this world series, you talked about these guys and how they stayed loose. ross gets on base a couple of nights ago and hasn't had a couple of hits. turns to the first base coach and said nice to meet you. they laugh and next time he comes up and blows the game wide open. they called themselves idiots in 2004 because they were too stupid to know there was a curse. now you look at the characters and it takes quirky characters to be able to perform this suffoc
's the key to your pound a day? >> it's creating a 3500 calorie day deficit. every 3500 calories you don't consume or burn, you lose a pound of fat. you do that by eating constantly. skipping meals makes you gain weight. >> exactly. >> six or seven a day. 200 to 300 calories each. not too great. a 16 ounce chocolate smoothie has 30 grams of pro10 and 11 grams of fiber made without sugar or fat. i have a chinese fruit that is sweet and calorie-free. after that, a small egg wight omelette and after that, i will do something like stir fried beef and broccoli and a green smoothy and two to three hours and it keeps going. >> sign me up. >> let's underline this. skipping meals is the way to gain weight. >> that's right. >> why? >> here's why. after two to three hours, your body needs nutrition. if you don't provide nutrition and get the hunger pang, we know that feeling, whatever you consume after your blood has changed that you are in starvation mode gets stored as fat. >> oh, no! >> cave man mode. >> you stay in cave man mode. let's show this again. isn't this great? >> yes. everything you h
against. they said that it would explode the deficit. and yet all the reputable organizations like the congressional budget office, have told us that it's going to save us $100 billion over ten years. so we've had a litany of objections from the republicans about the affordable care act, which has driven them to such a frenzy they even closed the government. so now we have you before the committee. and you're being asked, i suppose later you'll be asked about the web site. but let me pursue this question about individuals who have gotten notices that they're going to have their individual insurance policies cancelled. they'll be able to get another plan, won't they? >> actually, it's the law that they must get another plan. continuous coverage is part of the law. and that wasn't the case in the past. >> affordable care act said we're going to end the worst abuses of insurance companies, create consumer protection that they'll be able to buy a policy, even if that's been sick in the past that, women won't be charged more than men that, we're not going to let insurance companies deny
that the u.s. budget deficit is smaller, therefore, issuing less debt relative to what they were, can create a situation that you mentioned. and there is a consequence to what the fed is doing. in their econometric models, the effect is on inflation, outputs. what is not is unintended consequences. that's one of the situations we are going to see, i'm more confident of it. there is a flip side to what the fed is doing. there is no free lunch. and whether it's a big fall in the stock market at some point, a big spike in interest rates, then followed by a drop in interest rates because of what you said, are all possibilities, because we've hit such extremes in their policies, therefore, there is going to be possibly an extreme flip side. >> now, under the capital "i" for irony, let's look at something from a different tangent. if i look at the idea that the fed was afraid to taper because of the 100-plus basis point move when they just mentioned it, that tapering will be difficult. but i look at the world, i look at europe, i still see toxic assets out there. i see bad loans in china, infrastr
, 19 issues, on taxes, spending, deficit, debt, health care, energy. it's been over tactics. these fights have been over tactics and strategy and what irks me is to see groups like the senate conservative fund attack conservative republican senators, not over their policy votes but because they disagreed with them on political tactics. now, there's no place for this, you know, purity in politics is the enemy of victory. and what we want is what you said a while ago. republicans want to take over the senate so we'd have the house and after next year the senate, we have to win six seats. we've got at least seven good shots. and for our guys and people like cruz to want to start big fights over tactics is a setback. let's focus on policy where people see the difference between us and obama. >> who leads the party to that conclusion, though? there hasn't been someone who has been able to. >> i think governors do. if you look at governor and is their records of success, whether it's scott walker, john kasich, rick perry from texas had a fantastic run. and that's where we are actu
